Tool borrowing / lending...

Hi, hopefully this is the place to post this, if not please move mods.

I've bought and sold from some of you gents on here for about a year now I think, I know a couple of you have mentioned lending a tool here and there so if that still stands I would like to borrow a couple please.

Im wanting to remove my forks again so if someone has a stem tool that would be great or Im resorting to using a screw driver and a rubber mallet, its not pretty at that point. Also that huge socket 32mm I think....

Swing Arm removal, I've no idea what tool to use but I'm thinking it will be similar to the steering stem tool.

I think thats it, any advice welcome... Not taking the engine off, thought I'd spare myself that heart ache.

Will pay for shipping and buy you a new tool if I some how break it or it gets lost in the post.

Has just realized that I don't care what it costs until I get the bill! :roll eyes: ...

Cheers Ducky! I'll drop him a PM now. Now removing the swing arm is it as simple as removing the bolts, chain and suspension, job done? I'll search on here for a thread on it that someone has done if not I'll do my own.

Hi Rossco,

Got your PM. I still haven't used the tool, but I only need it to check the torque tightness of the new Titanium swing arm spindle assembly in place. Working on my VFR project this weekend and doing my best not to get distracted with other things - so I'll tighten up the spindle early next week sometime and can then post the tool onto yourself. PM me your address and tel no details. Postage will be $12 I think (4 day delivery EMS).

Thanks for the community spirit as always Duck!

On the note of tool borrowing, does anyone have a DID EM500 chain riveting tool?

Cheers

You don't need to remove the steering stem to remove the forks.
